2:09 am
i thought for a second am i 48? i am. i'm 48. >> i've always been this way. i don't like to be out late. >> i don't like late nights either. every now and then i think it's fun, but for the most part, i i'd rather have had my fun, my laughs, my conversation early. >> this experience with doing our show here and going to "scandalous," which is a theater life, is completely opposite than morning television life. i go to bed around 1:00 and am up at 4:00 or 5:00. >> that's crazy. >> our show doesn't start until 8:00. and i'm thinking tick okay tock. >> why don't they start until earlier? >> that's broadway. >> we are going to do a segment today on why we are not sleeping. >> everybody else out there that lives semi-normal lives. >> sometimes we look for one fix it. like the middle of the night i don't know what time it is and i
2:10 am
reach for my iphone or clock. i want to know i do have 45 minutes or four hour left to sleep. you want to know. when you have hours, oh, my god, that's so great. when you have 45 minutes, that's depressing. >> i don't care what time it is, i'm going to sleep until my alarm goes off. i don't use an alarm. >> what, how do you get up? >> i am up. i'm post-menopausal. who needs a clock? all right. so here is a poll that men are not going to like, but women are going to nod their heads and say of course that's true. they are polls about going to poughkeepsie. you guys who watch our program know what that means. >> look it up. you won't find what it means. it will say a city in new york, but it's not. >> they surveyed 6,000 people and they wanted to reveal how men and women viewed sex differently. they asked these 6,000 people, did your partner, did your wife, girlfriend, go to poughkeepsie during your romp.
2:11 am
85% of men said their female partners reached poughkeepsie. >> no problem, she's with me. >> when men left, they asked the women. >> who reached poughkeepsie? >> they go not with him. >> 64% of women said that they did. >> you think they are telling the truth? >> i think the 64% are, they are faking it for the guy so he doesn't feel bad. >> or they want it over. >> they want it over. it takes too long sometimes. you know it does. sometimes you want it over. everyone -- you want it over. it's enough already, right? >> sometimes it is. i'm not saying every time, there are certain times you're exhausted. >> why did you -- attempt a trip to poughkeepsie to begin with? >> it's not about you, it's about him. that time. >> okay. >> that's what you do. >> you lie to him because you care so much about him? >> sometimes it's a good lie. >> i don't know if you've seen a theme this past week, we're a lying, thieving group of
2:12 am
individuals. >> there are little levels of things. not everything is black and white. >> one lie makes it easier to lie the next time. >> no, no, here's the thing. >> i got away with it last time. >> do i look good in this dress? >> it's not your best dress. >> you would not have normally said that except you're taking the truth serum. you would have said you look good. >> but you do look good. >> you said it's not your best dress. >> i told the truth in the spirit of love. another study! >> oh, no, what is it? >> facebook. >> i think we skip this one. i do. okay, do it. kind of boring. >> facebook is more tempting than sex. this i do not understand, because i don't go on facebook. research from chicago university monitored 205 people a week to suss out their cravings. what they found -- >>
2:13 am
>> they wanted to check if people liked -- shopping, food -- >> people are most likely to get into the urge for. >> apparently, facebook, e-mail, twitter was number one on the things you could not resist. more so than shopping and other things. >> poughkeepsie. >> poughkeepsie. >> why is that? how sick is that? >> you know what, people don't want -- look, whenever i'm in an elevator, nobody looks up. they are always looking down. >> i make a point to say to someone, good morning, how are you? what's your dog's name? you know, because they are so into their nose up to something. it's a problem, hoda. we are post-modern society. for the first time in history, we are more comfortable in technology than fellow human beings. if we don't think we're going to pay some kind of price for that as a society --. >> i've thought about this before. we're so obsessed with texting. if texting had come first and then you could talk to somebody
2:14 am
on the phone, we'd be so into it. but because it went the other way, it's quicker, less back and forth. >> here's the thing, and we all do this. we know when we see who's called or texted us, we all do. human beings do what they want to do. there are some people you're thrilled to hear from, you dial them right away. other people, oh, that's going to be five minutes, you text them. right? >> or that person that never stops talking you don't even pick up. >> you monitor your time. you're realizing i will never get off the phone if i get on with that person, so you text. >> can we eat something? >> no. >> i'm hungry. let's talk about these. they are so cute. they look like chinese takeout, it's try-day friday, they are cupcakes layered in a to-go container. >> i don't know. >> this is black and white. go all the way in.
2:15 am
look what's happening here. it's got layers. >> this one is salty peanut. i didn't get down to the cake, though. delicious. >> $5.95 each at okay, do your friday funny. >> you know what? >> what? >> shortly after -- i'm going to wait. [ laughter ] >> i might as well enjoy it while it lasts. shortly after an airline flight had reached its cruising altitude, the captain announced, ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain, welcome to flight 330, non-stop from london heathrow to toronto. weather ahead is good, we should have a smooth, uneventful flight. so sit back, relax and oh, my god! silence followed. some moments later the captain came back on the intercom. ladies and gentlemen, i'm sorry if i scared you while i was talking to you. a flight attendant accidentally spilled a cup of hot coffee in my lap. you should see the front of my pants.
2:16 am
a passenger yelled -- "for heaven's sakes, you should see the back of mine!" >> i want to thank my friend robert shepherd who sent that into me. >> you know what it's time for? >> bobbie's buzz! >> hey, girl, how are you? >> i have brand new beauty people are buzzing about. chanel had tattoos come out. dior one-upped them with gold. tattoos. you can wear your jewelry on your skin. we have a picture of what a bracelet looks like. it's actually cool for a holiday. it's a real gold tattoo. >> how long does it last? >> probably 24 hours, maybe longer if you don't shower or something. i don't know. >> then nobody is going to care. this i'm kind of obsessed with. urban decay has come up with lip gloss in a pencil form. i gave hoda a color that would work for her. if we look really close, this pencil will help you apply really rich color, but it feels

in general, digital alarm clocks, cell phones, laptops, they emit blue light. it's the type of light we see during the day and tells our body not to sleep. when we see these at nighttime, we're not ready to sleep. >> mixed messages. >> what should you do? just not check your -- >> a traditional alarm clock is better. smart phones that power down and go into sleep mode are great. tablets and laptops, shut them down before bed. kindles are great because they don't have the back light. magazines and books. >> sometimes when you're watching a show before bed and can't sleep.

2:22 am
in your bed? >> this is a tough one. pets are really hard. we want them in bed. they're so cuddly. but the problem is even if you're not allergic to pets you can have sort of a temporary allergy in your bed, because the dander collects and the sheets and blankets and you start to sneeze at night. that's never good. >> bambino is hypoallergenic. he stays in one spot, i lean over, there he is, right there. >> frank is nearby? >> frank's hand is on him too. we both smoosh all night long. he brings me pleasure. i have little in my life, all right? >> wash the sheets more frequently. and you'll be good. >> i do wash my sheets. >> tell us about the colors on the wall. >> window treatments are really important. you need to make sure the blinds and curtains are well fitted around the window so you don't let in the slivers of light. when it comes to paint, all those popular colors like the bright reds and the greens,

back on this try-day friday with more of "today." do you want to develop that "wow" factor that gets you noticed in the office and gets you what you want in life? you need executive presence. >> how you speak, dress and otherwise yourself is going to have an impact on how seriously people take you. here to show us are ann, editor
2:33 am
in chief of marie claire magazine and our friend jean cascade. >> nice to see you. >> there's something that happens when you walk into a room. describe what you're talking about, what's executive presence? >> it has to do with how you act, how you speak, and how you present yourself in a room. it's about walking in a room with confidence and credibility. >> is it something you can fake or do you have to naturally have it? >> seems to me i wouldn't want to have to say to myself, i'm going to go in and be this and this if you're not that way. something authentic or something that you learn? >> it can be learned. we did a study and really boiled it down to three things, gravitas, confidence, and appearance. it's about finding the things in the gravitas piece of it, whether you have emotional intelligence or whether or not you can walk into a room and read the room and finding the things that come naturally to you and own them and hone those skills. >> i think people don't understand they have to practice this. even if you are not born with it. if you can get yourself out there, just as you'd practice
2:34 am
giving a talk, having an interview, you practice how you want to present yourself. >> how do you do that? >> in front of my friends or a mirror. the first time i came on this show, i practiced so many different ways to say everything because you knew you had to get the information out quickly, clearly, concisely. it also makes a huge difference in how much you get paid. the american association of university women just did a study. and they found college grads on a very equal footing, women are still earning about 20% less than men. we get paid about 80 cents on the dollar. >> that's amazing to me. >> i know a lot of people with tons of confidence and gravitas and other things and they are running things, but they are not necessarily the smartest one. the one who should be. they just know how to carry themselves, walk into a room. how important is stuff like that, what you wear. how you carry yourself? >> posture. >> i did it for this segment. i don't usually do that. it's not comfortable. >> okay.
2:35 am
>> certain things in appearance. appearance is one of the key things in it. there are things about your appearance that can trip you up. for example, too tight clothing, dressing a little bit too sexily maybe if you're going into a job interview, wearing too much makeup. the study we did, we surveyed 4,000 professional men and women, the number one thing for women in an interview, not wearing a bra. >> who isn't wearing a bra? people still don't wear bras, really? >> undergarments, little things. wearing the right one. >> if it's a bad one it looks like you're not wearing one. >> you need to dress for the job that you want. >> if you're going to hooters, don't wear one. >> if you're going into an interview, google a picture of the person you're interviewing and dress to them. >> that makes sense. >> reading their environment. that you're going into. >> a lot of people don't do that, read the room. >> in terms of your voice. some people are soft spoken and
2:36 am
it's not in their nature and people don't hear them. they get spoken over or whatever. what do you do if you're that sort of person? >> speak with authority, say what you're meaning and not overspeaking. make your point, be clear. >> practice. decide these are the three things i am going to say today, then say them well. >> that's the way actors learn their lines, over and over and over again. >> sometimes it's not what you say, it's how you say it. sometimes i don't remember what they said but i remember i liked how confident they were about themselves. >> thank you, ladies. do you know where your germs are lurking in your home? >> you may be surprised where you need to worry and where you can relax. >> it might be your husband. >> right after this.

so should you obsess about the germs lurking in your home? you may be surprised to learn where the dirty dangers are really there and what places are safe. >> here to tell us is julie baines.
2:41 am
she is health director at "ladies home journal." >> you're going to alleviate people's fears when it comes to germs. >> or cause a major panic. >> we can obsess less. >> let's hear why. >> things you touch a lot, a sink handle. refrigerator doors? are these culprits? >> germs are everywhere, but most of them don't make you sick. for example, the refrigerator door, you might have taken out the raw chicken, cut it up, then without thinking you're going to go grab the lettuce. you need to wash it. we don't always think to clean refrigerator handles. same with your sink handle. we may obsess about cleaning the inside of the sink, but we touch this to turn it on to wash our hands. >> also after you've used the bathroom, you know, you then open up -- >> bathroom sink handles. that's more important. >> medicine chest handles. >> that's a lot dirtier than the toilet seat. >> go to the toilet seat. our minds are there anyway. >> exactly. how dirty is it? >> we don't need to obsess about this.
2:42 am
this is the toilet in your home. as our microbiologist told us, nothing that germy comes in contact with the seat. let's face it. >> yeah. >> depends on where you live. >> most of us clean it. public toilets are a little different. it's the flush handle you need to clean. you may be scrubbing away and forget to clean the handle. >> i hear remotes, especially in a hotel room. >> hotel room remotes, good to take wipes with you, clean the hotel remote. at home, you're fine. unless someone in the house is sick, you're passing it around, then you're sitting there eating stuff. >> while watching tv. >> human beings are disgusting. >> here's the deal with germs. they are not going to hurt you unless they get inside of you. don't lick your remote and phone. >> some people have a problem with it. you shouldn't judge. >> the phone thing is interesting to me. look at a phone, anybody's phone. especially a woman. makeup all over. >> i wipe mine all the time. >> is there something nasty about the phone? >> we mostly carry them in our
2:43 am
purse. don't put it down on the bathroom floor and don't lick it. basically it's fine. >> why do you keep talking about licking the phone? >> don't kiss it when you're on face time with your phone. you can clean it with a wipe. 99% of the germs out there don't make you sick. you can lick my face. >> this is getting weirder and weirder. >> some people like to lick their sneakers. we don't judge. >> the bottom of the shoes. >> we all know someone who makes us take our shoes off when we go into their house. that drives me crazy. >> last time you visit. >> city streets are dirty, but they mostly stay on the floor. >> they don't get picked up? >> unless you lick your floor, it's probably okay. >> if you have a baby crawling around on the floor, yes, you can worry about this a little. in general these are not germs that are going to get into your body easily. >> i like the way you're thinking, julie. you're thinking things through. >> if someone in your house is
2:44 am
sick, this is where you need to be more careful than usual. it's a good idea to make the sick person stay in the bedroom for awhile. sort of isolate. they do say you should not share towels, because warm, damp places, cold and flu viruses are going to multiply. wash towels and sheets in hot water with bleach. >> just quickly at the end. this is alcohol-based. this is not like -- antibiotic soaps are not necessarily a good idea. they can contribute to antibiotic resistance. these are mostly made with alcohol. if you don't have access to a sink this is good. they will kill germs. regular soap and water and hand washing. >> jerry won't let us try it. coming up, real truth about healthy foods right about this. hi, everyone. i'm meteorologist kelly cass. we'll look at your forecast as we get the weekend started.
2:45 am
looks like it will be beautiful and very springlike across half of the count with warming temperatures. we have a strong system a cold front moving across the plains along with our winter storm from northern montana all the way down into colorado. the mountains of new mexico as well we have winter storm warnings in effect. we're talking one to two feet of snow in some locations, especially for some of the ski resorts in colorado. there's a look at the temperatures. i mentioned how warm it's going to be out ahead of that front. you'll see 70 in louisville, mid 60s in washington, d.c., 70s in atlanta and dallas. here comes the bitter cold air behind the front. we're looking at 19 for a high in billings, montana. now as we head towards sunday here comes the cold front bringing that chance for some strong thunderstorms. can't rule out the possibility of tornadoes. but for the most part it will be damaging winds, possibly some large hail and frequent lightning in dallas, tulsa, little rock towards kansas city and st. louis and knocking on chicago's door. we've got some football being played sunday night in chicago,
2:46 am
hopefully we'll get through all four quarters without any rain. but it's not going to be likely. it looks like that cold front will be moving in for that. 64 degrees for a high in chicago, 60 degrees in new york city. mild weather. that's what we need in the northeast especially where we still have power outages. here comes the front marching toward the east for the ohio valley, anywhere from cleveland down towards new orleans. we'll have that chance for more thunderstorms out ahead of it the mild weather. behind it you'll notice the big cooldown. chicago's high on monday only 40 degrees. and then by tuesday even across the south we're cooling things down with atlanta's high in the upper 50s and wet weather for the northeast and mid-atlantic coast. well stay with us. we've got more on your forecast, wake up with al on the weather channel 6:00 and 10:00 in the morning eastern time. wooohooo....hahaahahaha!
2:47 am
oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than a witch in a broom factory. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more.
